    1. لم أكن أنوي أبداً قراءة الكتاب، حتى تحميلي له كان لمجرد الفعل، ليس لنية مسبقه أو إهتمام لهذا الطائر. ريشه الرمادية ليست بجميلة حتى تتأملها وتتسائل عنها وصوته مزعج وتتمنى أن ترمي حصوات كُل صباح على الحمامات المزعجة التي استطونت المكيف هذا الشتاء. لكن هذا تغير بشكل بسيط عندما [...]


    2. .ماتت حلوتي يمامتيالتي كانت….ظننتها ماتت حزنًاولكن أيّ حزن هذا ؟فقد أوثق منها القدمانبخيط ناعمحاكته يداي.قصيدة جون كيتس بعنوان"the dove.كتاب يسرد التاريخ الطبيعي والثقافي للحمامة واليمامة، لا أحب الحمام الصراحة ، في المعتقد الشعبي عندنا تُعتبر تربية الحمام بجانب المنازل نذير [...]


    3. لطالما أعتبر الحمام رمزاً للسلام والحب والحرية والنقاء ، حتى أن بعض المنتجات العناية بالبشرة ك"دوف" اتخذت شعارها اليمامه وليس الحمام رغم أنهما من ذات الفصيله ، ذلك لأن الأول يحتل قيمة اجتماعية وعاطفية فكان حلقة وصل لمراسلات بين العشاق والجنود لا يتمتع بها " جرذان السماء " كما [...]


    4. This is a beautifully produced, gorgeously illustrated and fascinating book on pigeons and doves.It looks at the varieties of domesticated pigeons and how they have been used in sport, for food and in delivering messages, including the vital roles they played in wartime.The book also looks at how pigeons and doves have been portrayed in art and literature and how, despite being essentially the same group of birds, doves are portrayed as symbols of love, peave and fidelity while pigeons are often [...]

    8. This is my first of the Reaktion series of monographs on individual species of animals and I was pleasantly surprised, I expected the book to be quite slight and received a lovely heavy 230 odd page book that fits nicely in the hand and is full of colour and monochrome illustrations and photographs.Pigeons are a much maligned species, villified as 'rats with wings', as pests in interesting contrast to their albino versions, doves. They live in such close communion with us, exchanging their natur [...]


    9. The first chapter is a little confusing, it jumps from topic to topic, as if the author wasn't sure what she wanted to write about. However, it ends up being an informative first chapter and the rest of the book is well organized and straight forward. I never gave much thought to the pigeon, but after reading this book, I have a great deal more respect for this bird. My favorite chapter included the use of pigeons in the war effort (both WW1 and WW2). It was eye opening, powerful and sometimes e [...]
